We operated on a patient who had already had total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy who developed a pelvic mass.

The Pouch of Douglas was filled with a friable cystic mass of which the anatomo-pathological diagnosis was of a borderline serous cyst adenoma that probably was ovarian in origin.

The case is interesting because of the radiopathological hypotheses that are brought up and by the various ways of treatment that have been suggested.
